Defending Texas from Oklahoma
On 15th November 1968, Ellington Air Force Base confirmed the tragic loss of fighter pilot George Walker Bush.
Tributes were paid to this brave Air National Guardsman who had lost his life defending Texas from Oklahoma.
Favourable references were made to his father George H.W. Bush, who at only eighteen years old had become the youngest naval aviator in US history after the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941. And now a disaster far worse than Pearl Harbour was engulfing America.
Tragically, there would be no opportunity for his son to follow in his father's steps and become a Third World War hero. And yet heroes would surely need to emerge, and soon. For the territory within his father's House of Representatives seat in the 7th District of Texas was being threatened by the Soviet forces now launching aerial assaults from Oklahoma.
